CAM X 2017 13 Wednesday, December 13, 2017 NEW TECHNOLOGY Sheet-Form CNTs for Composites N12 Technologies Inc. (Cambridge, Massuchusetts) is showing its NanoSitch sheet products, featuring vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs), which add toughness, impact resistance and fatigue tolerance to composites, enabling lighter, thinner lami- nates for prepreg or resin film layups. N12 Technologies has recently announced a partnership with the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI; Dayton, OH) to enable increased production capacity and new wider- format products, which will be on display. N12 Technologies Inc., Booth N12. Industrial-scale Ovens and Furnaces Epcon Industrial Systems LP (The Woodlands, Texas) is featuring its industrial ovens and furnaces for curing, paint finishing, burn-out, heat treating, annealing and aging. Oven heating system options are gas-fired, oil-fired or electric, and each type can be configured for either conveyorized or batch production. Epcon industrial furnaces are designed for powder coating, annealing, pre-bake and pre-heat. Drum furnaces can be gas-fired, oil-fired or electric and configured as car-bottom and box-type. Air-pollution control systems, for VOCs, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides (NOx) are custom-designed with direct-fired thermal oxidizers (also known as afterburners), regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs), recuperative thermal oxidizers and catalytic oxidizers for VOC and NOx reduction. Epcon Industrial Systems LP, Booth Q61. Continuous Fiber-Reinforced Composites PolyOne Corp. (Avon Lake, Ohio) is showcasing its portfolio of continuous-fiber thermoplastic and thermoset composite technologies. Those in focus include continuous-fiber thermoplastic composite sandwich panels, composite springs for furniture and industrial applications, and pultruded thermoset composite components for rods, underbody chassis stiffeners and sporting goods. The Polimotor Stohr WF1 prototype racecar, built by Dauntless Racing, will be on display. PolyOne Advanced Composites is the exclusive supplier of composite parts for the Polimotor racecar, which will compete in the Formula & Automobile Racing Assn. (FARA) USA FP-2 class prototype racing series in 2018. Components that will be highlighted in the booth include front suspension springs and chassis flexural supports, created with Gordon Composites (Montrose, Colorado) thermoset materials; a firewall panel, formed with Polystrand (Englewood, Colorado) thermoplastic reinforced composites; and protective anti-intrusion panels created with Gordon Composites' thermoset materials bonded with Polystrand thermoplastic composite laminates. PolyOne Corp., Booth R12.
